Ears flapping, fur flying, she races in a crazy figure eight pattern in the backyard.
You see, we fenced in part of our yard for Chloe. We never did that for our other dog. Jake just always had a very long cable and never got to just roam the yard. But Chloe is the dog of our "golden years" and we spoil her just a bit.
She generally walks the yard with me and sticks close to my side. But every once in awhile, that crazy puppy energy takes over and she races around to get rid of it. Before the fence she stayed in the yard for the most part, but sometimes the energy propelled her across the street and into neighbor's yards.
She never ran away from me, she just raced to release all the energy.
She raced for fun.
I swear, she smiles as she runs.
